In 46 years, I saw A LOT of changes! The age of technology has changed banking tremendously.
When I started my banking career in the 70’s, everything was done by hand. From sorting and alphabetizing checks and deposits to posting them on a ledger sheet daily and balancing the banks books. That was the fundamentals of banking, making sure your debits and credits were balanced.
The people. My bank family (co-workers) and I were like family. I also loved the customers I served daily.
I have a lot of things I want to do around my home, but I also want to enjoy the flexibility of retirement. If a friend says, “Let’s go out to lunch!”, I can go more easily. I am also thrilled to spend even more time with my grandkids.
Building relationships with your coworkers and your customers makes for a pleasant and efficient workplace, but your most important relationship should be with Christ. My advice is to walk with Him daily.
Thanks for sharing with us Julie! We wish you the very best in your retirement and your First Southern National Bank family misses you!
